Frequently Asked Questions
Feel free to use the online form below to ask us about anything. You may also
have a look at the terminology
used at the AAA Awards pages.
- Q: Are you earning anything yourself? I.e. are all the money
you get going to the ones winning the awards?
A: Our goal is of course not to make a profit. We're glad if we can
finance the diplomas, etc. by means of contribution. When and if we receive
enough contributions, a sum of money will be added for the winners.
- Q: How much do the winners get?
A: In terms of money, nothing yet. What they do get, is a fine hand-written
diploma, and a very honorable recognition that they have accomplished
something grand: The winner of the AAA Award International also receives a
custom-made crystal glass Boing ball, with his/her/their name
engraved on a plaque.
Still, we hope to be able to add some money with time. It
is all up to Amiga companies, user groups, etc. Please check our
Contributions homepage for more information
- Q: There is any chance to know the candidates for the International
A: While we're accepting suggestions, we will not reveal any suggested
candidates. When suggestion time is over some time in January each year, a
jury will look into the suggestions, and nominate three final contestants.
These will be published on the AAA Awards Homepage, for public voting. After a
month or so, the results will be compiled, and kept secret until the
presentations at Amiga shows world-wide. After the presentations, all
suggestions will be made public. Please suggest your own candidate today!
- Q: Do you consider all suggested candidates equal ?
Or is there a bonus
if you're a "celebrity" ?
A: All candidates are equal. To quote the AAA Award Rules:
§5 When selecting the final nominees, all juries world-wide have
only one guideline:
"The awards should go to he/she/that/those which/who has/have done
the greatest achievement in contributing to the upkeeping of AMIGA®
values during the past year."
No other factors (financial, religious, personal or others) must
influence the decisions.
Of course, chances are that if you have done very much for the Amiga
and its community, people know who you are. But simply being a
"celebrity" is not, and shall never be, a merit on its own.
